Tess Thompson is a bestselling novelist of romantic suspense. She’s also a Zumba dancing queen, though the wearing of the crown is reserved for invitation-only appearances. Recently she’s participated in obstacle course races, the hardest of which was the Spartan Beast in Sun Peaks, British Columbia. It was an awful experience that will soon be included in a novel.

Here in the Pacific Northwest, the first day of spring rarely brings sunshine and warm temperatures. Particularly, here in Seattle, we often wait until late June, or, more commonly, July 5th, for springlike weather. Our trees and plants bud and flower despite our wearisome winter that lingers like an unwanted house guest. Blooms hang on for dear life as wind and sideways rain batter them. Daffo...

I gave up at 17%. There was no one up to that point that had any redeeming qualities except the poor neglected baby.

I realize this is the "it" book that everyone is discussing and I may be in the minority, but this book wasn't for me at all.

“She'd not known grief would come in waves, brought on by the smallest of things. Nor had she realized that ordinary acts of living would continue even after the loss of a love and that it would remain possible to get caught up in the moment of a simple pleasure before remembering.”
Tess Thompson
tags: grief

“She didn't belong here, amidst all the laughter, abandonment, the war cries of freedom. These other kids were alive and vibrant. She was chained and invisible.”
Tess Thompson, Riversong

“life isn't understandable. Only God understands and we have to wait until the end, where I imagine I'll see my questions answered, spread out across the heavens in waves of clarity.”
Tess Thompson, The River Valley Collection
